MOBO Tour 2012

This coming February and March, a selection of MOBO Artists will be embarking on an 8 city journey across the UK to showcase their talents in front of urban fans of who got their tickets for free. In association with Urban Development and PRS for Music Foundation, MOBO will not just be showcasing the rising talent of the urban scene, but there will be the chance for winners to attend industry workshops and seminars about the scene itself.

Starting in Birmingham on the 22nd of February and finishing on the 1st of March in Norwich, fans will be experiencing the likes of breakthrough MC Lady Leshurr and hip-hop/rock outfit Clement Marfo and The Frontline along with five further names that will be announced in the New Year.

The last surprise that is in store is the concept of a MOBO Unsung artist to perform at each of the cities closest to them. This is for undiscovered, brand new acts to get the chance to perform as to what might be their first ever live show. For your chance to enter, upload a video of yourselves to YouTube and email the link and details of which concert is closest to you at mobounsung@mobo.com. A team of DJs will select the winners for each of the 8 regional finalists. These winners will join an online ‘Battle Of The Bands’ competition where they will compete against other newcomers put forward by established artists. The public vote will determine the ultimate ‘battle’ winner.
